1. section perspective

The irony of transit infrastructure is that in the mission of connecting distant neighborhoods, too often these infrastructures create long-lasting divisions and boundaries. Station Socials reimagines the isolated train station not just as a means of traveling to and from Greater New York, but as community hubs for their respective neighborhoods. Through a system of indoor waiting spaces, outdoor ‘tempered’ spaces, and zones of engagement, my proposal renegotiates the physical divide the train station imposes. In doing so, Station Socials seeks to create a dialogue between the station and the community that promotes the narrative of decentralizing infrastructural economies to support local community hubs rather than the investment of major train terminals.
